Construction work for the new Cortex MetroLink Station may result in delays for some Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink passengers May 14-20.
MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Grand MetroLink Station, and Blue Line trains will only operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Stations during the following times:
- Monday through Wednesday, May 14, May 15; & May 16: From 8 p.m. to end of service
- Friday, May 18: From 11:30 p.m. to end of service
- Saturday and Sunday, May 19 and 20: From beginning of service until end of service
During these times, westbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West End MetroLink Stations, and travel to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a Blue Line train and continue their westbound trips. Eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes. Passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line trains.
